Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Radiation For Pancreatic Cancer
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was treated for pancreatic cancer. Doctors now claim they can find no indications of the previous diagnosed cancerous tumor.
“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” SCOTUS said in a press release.
Ginsburg, 86, has had four battles with cancer. Back in 1999, she was treated for colon cancer. Last December, doctors surgically removed two cancerous nodules from her lungs.
Ginsburg’s health is a divisive public issue due to her remaining liberal influence in the land’s highest court. Liberals fear that Ginsburg passing would likely lead to a heavily stacked Republican SCOTUS, although Justice Kavanaugh’s current decisions haven’t proved to be overly conservative. If anything, he’s shown a moderate lean.
Ginsburg says she intends to stay on the court as long as she possibly can.
“I’ve always said I’ll stay on this job as long as I can do it full steam.” She said via CNN.
“I was OK this last term. I expect to be OK next term. And after that we’ll just have to see.”
